When asked why she didn’t post her husband’s photos on social media, she said:
before we got married he is a very private person, and i actually
believe in respecting people’s zones until they are ready. It’s not like
we don’t. So because a lot of things don’t happen right now-people are
like, why are you not doing this and why are you not doing that,
what’s wrong, what are you hiding, you know what i mean?
We are not hiding anything, we actually go to events together and do
stuff together, and i just feel, for me, am not very good at…, I like
enjoying the moment, yeah, and am actually very bad at doing the posting
thing. I don’t know if you have noticed, i mean recently, I started
doing selfies when people were like, Di’ja, why are you not doing
selfies? So not long ago, i did my very first mirror selfie, (Laughs).
Not like i don’t want to do these things sometimes, I just enjoy the
moments and forget to take pictures when we hang out, that’s why
presently, i am always begging my crew, (‘please help me take pictures
mek me sef dey pose na, wetin dey happen?’) So, it’s just that thing
where I am enjoying the moment and then I forget. So we are not hiding
anything. Sometimes if he can make it with me to an event, he comes, and
if can’t, he will come to the next. So it’s not like he is not there,
or that it doesn’t happen, i guess it’s just that, it happens and i
don’t get to translate it on my page.
On why she had a very low key wedding.
Well, i mean, if you call having about
400 people grace your wedding low key, then i guess, yeah. It was more
of just intimate and it’s also in my home town, Kaduna, so it’s kind
of hard to get people to come over there and then Kaduna is not as
‘Noisy’ as Lagos.
So anything like that could be probably called low key, but like i
said, most of these things are happening but, where the problem lies is
that i just don’t translate them onto being posted on my page. And i
guess in the ‘Post it’ ‘Tweet it’ world; you almost kind of look
abnormal if you don’t. But it’s not like am going out of my way not to,
i guess it’s just not in my character to do it all the time, but i’m
also getting better at my Instagram. At least you see my baby and all
other stuff, (laughs).
So I always say there is difference between privacy and secrecy, it’s
not something to hide. Again, i guess people forget that when you are
in the entertainment industry, you also have to live a normal life. For
instance, i wake up in the morning and i give my son a bath, and
sometimes my mom will, and other times, it is a maid and an aunt that
would help me with him. So don’t forget you have a real life too and you
have people to answer to as well.
Again you wake up and you have people that are depending on you, and
people you pay for the work they do for you, you know as much as we
have this entertainment life, and it’s amazing, i mean, God bless you
all for liking us so much because it’s actually your love that has put
us on the pedestal, but we also do these things and wake up with a
regular life, so in that sense and sometimes because i could get
carried away, that’s majorly the problem.
When asked why she is yet to record a song with her label mate Tiwa Savage and how she feels when she is referred to as Mavins First Lady.
Uhm, do you see how many we are? And how do you know we haven’t? I keep telling people that, it’s not all the songs that you recorded today, that you’d be release today. So depending on how long you have been working. When you started is only as irrelevant as whatever people feel that they already know about what you are doing, but then you have been working on many things, but I always say, how do you even know we haven’t collaborated yet, it’s just that the said song, you haven’t heard it yet.
But i met her there, right? I mean, she is the first lady of Mavin records. It’s kind of funny when people want to state the obvious. Tiwa is such an inspiring person. Set aside the fact that we are even in the same record label, i mean, she has done so much and been through so much, and she still keeps this standard of performance that she does all the time, you know what i mean, you can see it. For me, it’s inspiring, and like i said, i met her there. When you go to a place and you meet someone there, it’s one of two things, it’s either you learn from them or you don’t, and so what i am doing and what would be good for me is to learn from somebody that is that strong and that can inspire me and it’s really mad cool, yeah.
